Good afternoon! It’s January 21, today in 1643 Abel Tasman discovered Tonga and in 2017 the great women’s march took place. Today is National Cuddle Day in America, so a big hug from your Guard and a very big WKNDW8!

Interesting: God of War Developers on Finishing the Game

GameInformer had an interview with creative director Cory Barlog and Santa Monica studio head Shannon Studstill about the last mile of developing the new God of War. They are tired, there is still a lot of work to be done, so there will be quite a heavy atmosphere in the studio. Work work work! The video is not all about how hard it is, or how great the game will be: it also goes a little deeper into how things are going at Santa Monica.

PS4 Pro costs 767 euros in Brazil

The Guard remembers well that Nokia came up with special cheaper phones especially for Africa, where mobile phones can be of vital importance. In Africa the average inhabitant simply has less money than in the Netherlands or North America, for example. This also applies to Brazil, but you don’t have to count on cheap tech there. The PS4 Pro will be introduced on the Brazilian market next month with a price tag of no less than 2999 Real, that is 767 euros. Of course, a PlayStation 4 Pro is not a much needed item, but it is a hefty price for a country with much less prosperous inhabitants.

Nightmarchers is a post-apocalyptic Hawaii shooter

Hawaii is rarely used in games. A shame, because it has a very distinct culture. Fortunately, that is likely to change, as there is now an open world RPG shooter in the works called Nightmarchers. There is a campaign running on Fig to raise money so that you can soon start fighting with handsome Kai against Kamapua, the god who has taken over Oahu.

The Bad Boys series really seems to be happening

Bad Boys, that comedy film series starring Will Smith and the always misogynistic Martin Lawrence, is likely to be turned into a series soon. The focus is on Gabrielle Union’s character Syd Burnett. She’s the sister of Martin Lawrence’s character and she’s going to work at the LAPD in Los Angeles on this spin-off.

Square Enix has unveiled a Sora second form figurine from Kingdom Hearts III

Oh boys and girls, this year, after eighty-five intermediate parts and ports, Kingdom Hearts III will finally be released. Square Enix adds some extra fuel to the fire of desire with a very thick Sora figurine. With an extra head, which looks really crazy in the picture, but is of course meant to make the character look angry or happy. That hair! <3

Heathers is fighting against the world’s standards

Based on the original black comedy Heathers from 1988, the Heathers trailer is full of topics we have regularly faced over the years. Yet the film tries to confront us with it again, such as fat shaming and how queers are dealt with. The Guard misses Winona.

The sun is shining, if possible, give your grandmother a call and enjoy this last day of the week. Have a nice day today!
